Minnesota Wolf Hunt Desecrates Ojibwe Creation Symbol

Minnesota Wolf Hunt Desecrates Ojibwe Creation Symbol | IDLE NO MORE WISCONSIN | Scoop.it
Despite lawsuits and public opposition, wolf hunting began in Minnesota on November 3.
Sarah LittleRedfeather Kalmanson's insight:

Sacred story of creation belongs to Native peoples. In Minnesota, there are seven Anishinaabe (Chippewa, Ojibwe) reservations and four Dakota (Sioux). Understand that tribes retained these "reservations" after ceding original homelands to the United States through treaty agreements. The federal government did not "give" anything to the indigenous people. Most of the land was taken, treaties are under legal challenges, and for that reason, putting values and numbers on "acreage" is meaningless. And here it is where we must begin with the wolf, who is the heart center of the native peoples' creation story.


The Anishinaabe or Ojibwe creation story teaches that the original man, the Anishinaabeg, was "lonely and asked the Creator for a companion," says Reyna Crow of the Northwoods Wolf Alliance.

 

The Creator sent Wolf (Ma'iingan) to be the Peoples' companion and brother. Ma'iingan and Anishinaabeg were told to travel together and name everything in nature, including all of the plants and animals. After they did this, they returned to the Creator who told Wolf and Anishinaabeg that he would separate them. From now on they would forever walk apart from each other, but that they would live parallel lives. "WHAT HAPPENS TO ONE WILL ALSO BEFALL THE OTHER," the Creator said.

 

The final part of the creation narrative tells the People that Wolf felt badly that his human companions would be lonely without him. So, he gave his descendant, Dog (Animoosh), as a sacred gift. Now Dog is the Peoples' loyal and devoted companion, ensuring that there is no need to walk alone.

 

In the course of the brutal settlement of America, both the wolf and indigenous peoples were hunted, slaughtered, hated, and vilified as white culture bled across the tapestry of the land. Indeed, Wolf and the People are still walking parallel lives.

 

"If you take the fur of ma'iingan, you take the flesh off my back," says Robert DesJarlait, of the Red Lake Ojibwe-Anishinaabe Nation. DesJarlait is a writer, journalist, artist and a member of the University of Minnesota Council of Elders. DesJarlait "signs his works of art with the symbol of a wolf's paw to honor the historic and ancient connection between tribal people and wolves."

Robert DesJarlait's curator insight, February 11, 2013 2:22 PM

Ma'iinganag and Manoomin. It is all connected and a part of the Four Orders of Life. The forced migration/displacement of Ma'iinganag is one of the impacts of nonferrous mining. The sneseless slaughter of Ma'iinganag is part of the colonized mindset in which wildlife and the environment is an obstacle for corporate personhood and the relentless agenda of ecocide. 

JRey Crow's curator insight, February 18, 2013 2:56 PM

Northwoods Wolf Alliance will be doing this again in `13. JOIN US and stop the hunts on ma'iingan in Anishinaabeg territory (then we work on the rest of the world).

Sarah LittleRedfeather Kalmanson's insight:

Um, HOW ABOUT NO MINE, END OF STORY!

“Sen. Tiffany’s bill serves only to advance political interests. SB 1 is nothing more than a series of legal charades that will not lead to any jobs for Northern Wisconsin. While Tiffany and his Republican allies will spin the passage of this bill as a political victory, the real losers will be the workers of Wisconsin who have been promised jobs but will soon discover that the bill left them empty-handed.

 

In contrast, I have supported meaningful, bipartisan mining reform legislation created by Sen. Cullen and Sen. Schultz that will protect our environment. Other alternatives in this bill include:

 

• Sen. Cullen’s bill does not exempt iron mining companies from the moratorium law, unlike SB 1 which does.

 

• It creates a realistic permitting timeline – two years from application submission to the decision deadline while allowing for a six-month pause by the DNR and additional pauses as requested by the mining company instead of the short, inflexible, and unrealistic one created in SB 1.

 

• Allows enough flexibility for the Army Corps of Engineers to conduct a joint permitting process with the Wisconsin DNR. That means a mining applicant can expect a smoother, faster, and less expensive permitting process. SB 1, on the other hand, ends this collaboration leading to more delays and opportunities for legal challenges.

 

• Sen. Cullen’s legislative process was conducted completely out in the open, with input from mining experts, environmental advocates, state and federal regulators, and interested businesses. In drafting SB 1, this input was nonexistent.

 

• Sen. Cullen held public hearings around the state, including the areas most affected, instead of limiting public input to just one hearing in Madison as is the case with SB 1.

 

In every way, the bipartisan legislation draws a stark contrast to SB 1 – and it could actually lead to an environmentally sound mining operation in Northern Wisconsin. We, as a state, are better than back room deals that sell our state short.”
